Do You Look at Porn? Why or Why Not? 

Week of June 30, 2004

Patrick Wroblewski
Cosmetology Student
"I rarely look at pornography anymore because of that time my mom caught me with a porno mag -- I think I was twelve -- and if I ever do look at porn, I'm always afraid she's gonna catch me and kick me out of the house or punch me in the face. She's pretty strict when it comes to things like [that]. And even if I'm at somebody else's house watching it on a video, I'm worried she might knock down the door, barge in and kick my ass."

Jane Barrow
Artist
"Sure, doesn't everybody? And damn those pop-ups!"

Joe Marlotti
Actor/Writer
"Yes, I do watch it, and I write it off because it is actually for business purposes. As a writer I need to know what the kids are into these days. But perusing it for pure entertainment? No way. I'm married. What more could I ever want?"

Holly Laws
Professional Sock Model
"Yes, I look at porn. It's the only time I get to see a naked man in my bedroom with a 'six-pack' that doesn't have a Budweiser label on it."

James Mitchell
Cook, South City Diner
"Yeah, I look at it, mostly movies. Why I look at it -- 'cause it arouses me, and it makes my sex life better with my wife, that's why."

Maria George
Cardio Instructor, Soulard Fitness Center
"I do. Americans need to get away from their paranoia about nudity. The human body is a beautiful thing, and if you teach kids that it's distasteful and it always needs to be covered up, then you make them think it's ugly. John Ashcroft once gave a press conference in front of the statue of Justice, and he cover[ed] her with a curtain because he couldn't handle nudity. Shame on him, because boobs were the gift of life when he was a babe!"
